Door entry system has break glass to unlock from the inside in an emergency
The Environment Agency (EA) sent officers as a precaution to advise the fire service when a tanker gas leak occurred. The EA said it was being treated as a safety incident, which was tackled by four fire appliances. Firefighters had to extend a cordon to 500m (1,641ft) downwind of the leak until the incident was brought under control within a few hours at Powys. A fire service spokesman confirmed: “The lorry tanker is leaking a large quantity of gas.”
